Kristi @ The Potter’s Hand Academy Summer Reading Adventures for Boys

It has been said that the definition of a boy is noise with dirt on it. That is SO true of my three! With that in mind, summertime is the realm of boys. There are adventures to be had, places to explore, and mischief to make!

Gwen @ Tolivers to TexasSummer Reading for Boys (and a for few girls, too!)

While I don’t have the perfect answer to this, I have found that whether my boys are early, average, or slow readers in proficiency, they all love to read. The biggest factor in this, I believe, is that we have always done tons of read-alouds together. I can’t state the importance of this enough.

Renata @ Sunnyside Farm FunWell-Loved Books for Boys

We are passionate about reading here at Sunnyside. From the oldest to the youngest we love the feel of a new (to us) book in our hands. A well composed story is always appreciated & one of our favourite times of the evening is when I curl up in the Boys room with all 4 children & read aloud a specially chosen story! During winter we snuggle under thick, soft covers and in summer we bask under the air conditioner, but always we enjoy it.
